Another one that bugs me are the members who write like a Hollywood version of the 'mystical native American wiseman.'

Well, I hate it when people use the word "whom" to try and sound smart but then use it wrong.
Hint: It is not interchangeable with "who."
As for the OP's point, I think it is condescension. I recently read a thread where a poster was addressed as 'child'. Seriously.

Sorry, I honestly couldn't resist. Besides, it's Shakespeare.
The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

I just feel that it is more empirical to your points if you were to use old English, Latin and other archaic forms of language to explain your message via translated meaning; rather than commenting in said languages.
Latin says this, Exceptio firmat regulam in casibus non exceptis
Old English style; Thy exception confirms thy rule a case where it be not axcepted.
Modern usage; The exception confirms the rule in cases which are not excepted.

Gotta say also that the members who end their posts by typing out 'peace and light' make me nervous.
